We should be treating the societal, not biological cause of ADHD


Excellent piece,well written Like 8 am I feel there is a wealth of evidence out there to support this point of view Shabi big pharma only have to answer to shareholders, noone else The accusations of disease mongering, data manipulation, and market manipulation have been well made by: marcia angell,margaret mcartney,malcolm kendrick,all produced excellently written,authoritative and highly readable accounts. Like Shabi all miss the point, to accuse pharma, in this way, is to accuse the all blacks of being unfair, because they run faster,it's their job The question Shabi and all similar authors fail to address, is why is it so easy to fool gp's? Why are we so gullible? What is wrong with the education system? Why is a system dominated by the college producing such nieve practitioners? The college is the source of the problem, not big pharma.
